    I worked at Blue Rhino full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co worker, customer and good benefits. And a 4 day work week.

    Cons

    Elbow breaking work, mediocre pay at best. The harder you work the less overtime you earn.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring newbies at a higher pay rate than seasoned employees so you keep employee turnover.

    I worked at Blue Rhino full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, competitive salary and flexible schedule. I really enjoyed working here when I first started a few years ago.

    Cons

    Company is very poorly managed from the top to the bottom. Management does not seem to care about employees or customers and it is no wonder that the company is struggling.

    Advice to Management

    If you cared more about your customers and employees instead of your own salary then the company might turn around

    Pros

    Never had to stay late due to being forced out at 5 to avoid a minute of overtime. Allowed to dress casually and listen to music.

    Cons

    Company is falling apart, everyone is miserable. No raises this year. Only management is salary, everyone else is hourly has to clock in and out which makes you feel like you work at McDonald's...and you only get a 30 minute, unpaid lunch. If you are a contractor, expect them to keep you that way as long as possible. The higher ups in the office barely come in. Absolutely 0 appreciation for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Showing an ounce of appreciation to your employees would be a good start. Stop blaming all of the company's failures on the "warm winter".

    I have been working at Blue Rhino full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. ESOP is top notch. Supervisors are easy to work for as well. Our busy season is approximately 3 months where you really busy your hump in the summer. Then we only work 3 days a week 14 hour shifts.

    Cons

    This occupation requires heavy repetitive lifting while making deliveries in all elements of weather. The summer can be challenging and you need to stay hydrated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward with the company. Always try to find ways to improve. Otherwise, if you remain stagnet, your competition will pass you by on the road to excellence.

    I worked at Blue Rhino full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of time to converse with others.
    Multiple breaks (one 30 min break).
    A degree of flexibility.

    Cons

    The boss can make or break the warehouse. In my case it was the latter. The boss would not turn the heat on until it was below 6 degrees, furthermore if it was a 99 degree type of day you just have to deal with it. I suppose this was done to save money, but it's not very fun trying to pick up a 180 lb box with frozen hands.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to voice their opinions a little more to help strengthen the work environment. The employees would not feel like they are unimportant.

    Cons

    Parent company doesn't have a clue how to run this side of the business but they still try to come in and take over.

    Advice to Management
